So it’s Friday. Doesn’t really make any difference to me though. I’ve not got a day off until at least next Tuesday. Still, I’ve noticed that as the evenings are beginning to draw in, and sunset is currently around eight o’clock, silly season on the road is starting. Quite a few cyclists are already riding about with no lights on as the daylight fades.
Even before it’s totally dark, it becomes less easy to see unlit bicycles especially when they’re in the shadow of passing vehicles, and with the headlights of oncoming cars, trucks and buses making it harder still.
Today the weather is still lovely and warm, but a little cooler than yesterday, topping out in the low 80’s this afternoon. Glorious sunshine for most of the day though, so no complaints there.
It’s going to be a little cooler over the next few days, but it doesn’t look like the end of summer any time soon. You never know in this part of the world, but, after all, we’re still in August, and we could have decent warm weather for at least another month yet.
All in all we’ve had a pretty reasonable summer. Of course, it doesn’t please everyone. We don’t generally have air-conditioning in the home here in England, so it can get a little warm and sticky indoors sometimes, especially at bedtime.
Which brings me to it being that time again really. Had a nice glass of wine after some delicious pork cooked by Kathy, along with some green beans and coleslaw.
It’s time to say good goodnight.
